    Thanks for your comments and positivity, great you enjoyed your time with AUT. Staff welfare and engagement is of critical importance to us. Staff are encouraged to work with their manager to discuss any issues and certainly if hours longer than expected are being worked we would hope that there are aspects a manager can review to resolve this. Appreciate your feedback again.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry your experience does not reflect university policy. It is a pity you did not have the opportunity to share your views with the Associate Dean – Teaching and Learning in your faculty. The university maintains rigorous academic standards, overseen by an Academic Integrity Unit, the Head of Teaching and Learning in each faculty and by the Deputy Vice Chancellor - Academic. Exam and assignment processes are subject to various processes to ensure rigour, including moderation; they are also subject to internal and external audit and while the university strives to achieve great outcomes for all students, the awarding of qualifications is restricted to those who pass.
